I know that it being 27th anniversary of Randy Rhoads' death last week, I'm a few days late posting this, but there are a few items that I'd like to share with everybody. A few present-day photos of the Rhoads crash site have come into my possession: This is the airfield from where Randy Rhoads took off alive and would never return. Imagine that this landscape, these trees, and these buildings are the last things that the three victims ever saw. The road and entrance to the bus depot and airport. The location of the accident. You can see the mansion, and behind the two dark green, round-ish palm trees in the middle of the photo, is the garage that the plane crashed into and exploded. Heading from left to right is the airstrip; it can be seen as a thin strip of concrete along the wooden fence line. Between the airstrip and the group of very large trees on the right of the photo is where the tour bus would have most likely been parked. After striking the tour bus, the plane severed a large pine tree. That pine tree may have been amongst the group of large trees on the right or amongst the other large pine trees seen rising from the back/center of the photo. This is where it all went down, literally. When I think of Randy Rhoads and the way he was taken from this earth, I become very sad and feel heart-broken. These images show a place where events occurred that would change hard rock forever. Who knows, for certain, what other types of music Randy would have given to the world? These images seem to show a world that has gone on since 1982, but for those of us who understand, these image have powerful impact. It shows a place of heavy consequence, deep despair, and untimely ruin.
